Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce award nominees announced

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce announces this year's nominees.

The CVCC has been honouring businesses leaders and extraordinary individuals with achievement awards since 1974. While the award categories have changed over the years, the one thing that has remained a constant is the high caliber of award nominees and recipients.
